Léopold Dewolf was born in 1991 in Paris, France. After completing high school in France, Léopold moved to London, and attended the University of Westminster where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Animation with First Class Honors. Without wasting a bit, Léopold then flew to Los Angeles to earn his Master in Film Production from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. His shorts “Niagara” and “We Are Your Friends” netted him several awards and selections in film festivals throughout Europe, including The 31st Festival Tous Courts in Aix-en-Provence, the Screen Stockport Film Festival in England, and the ECU Independent Film Festival in Paris.
Léopold wants to make movies about young people, his generation — a globalized generation, from Paris, to London, to Los Angeles; without borders but with an insane lust for life!
